Mauna Lani Bay Championship Golf Course

Mauna Lani Bay – Three amazing golf courses, one amazing golf resort.

Situated just a short drive from our KaMilo homes with beautiful Kohala Coast ocean and mountain views, we are proud to call the Mauna Lani Bay our home course.  With three beautifully manicured courses nestled within the natually rugged Kohala Coast landscape, Mauna Lani truly has something for every golfer.

The South Course

The Francis H. I’l Brown South Course is a true championship golf course renown as the former home to the annual Senior Skins Game from 1990 – 2000. The resort is now home to the prestigous Hawaii State Open.  This Big Island golf course captivates golf enthusiasts as it snakes through the stark, rugged a’a lava of the prehistoric Kaniku lava flow, offering a panorama of mountain and ocean views alongside a challenging golf experience. The South Course is also home to No. 15, one of the most photographed over-the-water golf course holes in the world.

The North Course

Mauna Lani’s North Course represents the quintessential golf experience on the Big Island. Built on a lava bed, this championship golf course in Hawaii is characterized by rolling terrain punctuated by Kiawe (mesquite) forests. Number 17, a par three tucked into a natural lava amphitheater, is one of Mauna Lani Resort’s signature holes and a favorite “I was here” photo spot.  A 230-acre protected archaeological district lies on the northern boundary of the golf course. Herds of feral goats frequent the entire golf course, moving from hole to hole throughout the day. The North Course has fast become one of the most popular tournament venues on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The Keiki Course (9-hole)

The 9-hole Keiki (children’s) course is truly a one of a kind experience and is the only course of its kind in all of Hawaii.  The entire family can enjoy golf together on Mauna Lani Resort’s Keiki Golf Course, designed for junior golfers and children 18 years and younger.  Mauna Lani wants to play a role in encouraging youngsters to learn and enjoy the great game of golf. This Big Island, Hawaii golf course is designed for younger golfers that have some golf skills but they might not be ready to play our 18-hole championship courses.  Keiki golfers under 14 must be accompanied by an adult. The course is designed for junior players so adults must accompany a Keiki golfer to play on the Keiki Course.
